Instalife: California wrap-up

The vacation is over. We have returned home.

I thought about doing the usual monthly-ish Instalife post, but so much happened and was documented on our trip that I decided on a little video collection instead.

More photos and stories soon.

Two years!

Two years under our belt. Two countries lived in. More cakes than can be counted. Not enough holidays away together. But we're on one now as this post goes up! In the country where we got hitched ourselves (if not anywhere within a thousand miles of the place).  A lot of yarn in my hands, a lot of controllers in your hands. An increasing amount of stuff surrounding us...

It's been a wild ride. Admittedly the first year was the craziest and full of experiences that I'm quite happy to never have to repeat in my life! But the second one has been lovely in the calmness and excellent in the fun bits.

Here's to another trip around the sun! I couldn't wish for a better co-pilot.

Instalife: The Month that Was

I suppose we're now soundly in October. As you're reading this, I've already arrived (knock on wood) in California for some family time, my brother's wedding, and a little anniversary holiday combined! It's not quite the same as getting home to Wisconsin, but at least I'll get to spend time with my family regardless.

September was a bit busy and a lot exciting.

Science lady Lego // Almost meeting Helen Mirren and attending the gala screening of "The Hundred Foot Journey //
Shiny shiny nails // DirtyBurger

Green smoothies now and then // Unseen plot twists //
Meeting a giant squirrel! // Scotland voted on independence

ALLOFTHEBAKING // I won the "traybake" category of the Wandsworth Bakeoff! //
The Handmade Fair with Kirstie Allsopp (& Paul A. Young)

Knotting and chaining // adventures in dinner //
relaxation // the best chocolates in London, and probably the world.

Weaving, weaving, weaving // making button badges for BCUK //
a taping of "Mock the Week" // the best new cookie cutter set

October has started off with gusto. It's been an amazing last week, so I have high hopes for the rest of this month. I might be quieter on social media and the blog while I'm stateside, but I hope to have stories to share when I get back!
